Over 8 in 10 Spanish broadband users signed up to 100Mbps-plus fibre

Friday 26 March 2021 | 08:58 CET | News
Spain ended 2020 with a total of 66.5 million NGN (new generation network) accesses, up 5.8 percent year on year, with fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) accesses reaching 58 million, up from 52.2 million in December 2019. The latest monthly update from regulator CNMC revealed that active NGN connections in the country rose to 14 million in December, up 9.7 percent year on year, with FTTH growing by 1.4 million to 11.7 million, easily offsetting declines in ADSL and HFC lines.
